The French navy is moving to the open source project management software Codendi for its software development. The software forge is also intended to help programmers adhere to development standards.
The open source project will be the responsibility of the navy's business application department (Centre Informatique des Applications Métiers, CIAM). A French Codendi specialist, Code-Opus, was awarded the contract to install, configure and maintain the platform.
The CIAM is in charge of developing software applications for the French navy. It also develops applications used by other parts of the French army and several French ministries.
Codendi, published under the GPLv2 open source licence, is developed by IT company Xerox. It offers tools for software development teams, to manage projects, host code and manage versions, manage software specifications, track bugs, help with documentation and testing. The platform automates the software development cycle, integrating methodology and defining development standards.
According to statements on the Codendi website, the Navy will use the forge for software development projects related to business lines such as finances, logistics and human resources.
